Naked and Afraid is a Discovery Channel reality show. Each episode follows two survivalists (a guy and a girl) spending twenty-one days in the wilderness naked. They really are naked and afraid, get it? The survivalists are strangers and they first meet each other in the wilderness and in the buff. They each get to bring one item along. Most of the time they take a fire starter or a machete, but one bitch brought a pot. Of all the things that you can bring, she brought a fucking pot. Oy. So they get dropped off in the wilderness and then they have to get to know each other while building a shelter, starting a fire, and looking for food. Some of the personalities are bound to conflict and that makes for some good reality TV.
Naked and Afraid goes all over the world. They go to jungles, remote islands, swamps, coasts, deserts, and grasslands. Each episode is always two new survivalists, so there are always new characters to love or hate and it always seems fresh. It’s not a contest. They aren’t trying to compete. They are just trying to survive the wilderness and each other for three weeks. Sometimes they get along great, and sometimes they butt heads. Sometimes they succeed, and sometimes someone taps out. It’s always entertaining. It proves that nudity makes reality shows better.
